Chevron Flag Paper CraftSunday, June 30, 2013
Imagine my astonishment this morning when I looked at the calendar and saw that tomorrow is July.
I may have had a mini-meltdown before breakfast, "But I haven't even been to the pool yet! School practically starts tomorrow!"
When I finally calmed down I remembered that the Fourth of July is coming up and I should probably decorate.
After browsing Pinterest for ideas and saying 'Merica for a half hour I decided to get all patriotic with a simple chevron flag design. Is the chevron craze over yet? Hope not, cuz I'm still digging it!
I didn't want to spend all afternoon creating something so using supplies I had on hand - red,white, and blue scrapbook paper, scissors, a ruler, tape, and a spare frame I put this together.
A Simple Kind of Life. I didn't think I would need instructions on such an easy task but sometimes my brain likes to make simple things difficult. In about 10 minutes I had my lines drawn and ready to cut.
Then I just arranged the chevron strips of paper in lines that resembled Old Glory, taped them down, and there you go!

So in about 25 minutes of drawing and cutting I have a simple, patriotic frame to add to my tiny window ledge.
Did you decorate for Independence Day? I love celebrating the Fourth with a good BBQ and watching fireworks. Hopefully we will head to the river front this year to see some pretty ones!
